Warning Anakin Skywalker's Physical Strength (Comparison)

Let's go through the roster.

Anakin Skywalker vs Dooku:

Attack One: "The first overhand chop of Skywalker's blade slid off Dooku's instinctive guard."

Attack Two: "The second bent Dooku's wrist."

Attack Three: "The third flash of blue forced Dooku's scarlet blade so far to the inside that his own lightsaber scorched his shoulder, and Dooku was forced to give ground."

Continued: "Skywalker came on, mechanically inexorable, impossibly powerful, a destroyer droid with a lightsaber: each step a blow and each blow a step. Dooku backed away as fast as he dared; Skywalker stayed right on top of him. Dooku's breath went short and hard. He no longer tried to block Skywalker's strikes but only to guide them slanting away; he could not meet Skywalker strength-to-strength - not only did the boy wield tremendous reserves of Force energy, but his sheer physical power was astonishing."

---

Continued: "Skywalker was all over him. The shining blue lightsaber whirled and spat and every overhand chop crashed against Dooku's defense with the unstoppable power of a meteor strike; the Sith Lord spent lavishly of his reserve of the Force merely to meet these attacks without being cut in half, and Skywalker- Skywalker was getting stronger. Each parry cost Dooku more power than he'd used to throw Kenobi across the room; each block aged him a decade. He decided he'd best revise his strategy once again. He no longer even tried to strike back. Force exhaustion began to close down his perceptions, drawing his consciousness back down to his physical form, trapping him within his own skull until he could barely even feel the contours of the room around him; he dimly sensed stairs at his back, stairs that led up to the entrance balcony. He retreated up them, using the higher ground for leverage, but Skywalker just kept on coming, tirelessly ferocious. That blue blade was everywhere, flashing and whirling faster and faster until Dooku saw the room through an electric haze and now Kenobi was back in the picture: with a shout of the Force, he shot like a torpedo up the stairs behind Skywalker, and Dooku decided that under these rather extreme circumstances, it was at least arguably permissible for a gentleman to cheat."

Other Opponents vs Dooku:

Mace Windu vs Dooku: http://static6.comicvine.com/upload...82452-blz13.jpg

Grievous vs Dooku: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xy_Po12VyZw

Yoda vs Dooku: "Yoda's green blade caught the blow, holding the red lightsaber at bay, locking the two in a contest of strength, physical and of the Force."

---

As demonstrated, Anakin Skywalker is physically stronger than Mace Windu, Grievous, or Yoda.

More importantly, Anakin Skywalker's strength is greater than that of Darth Vader's (#suckitup).

Note that Grievous alone likely has greater physical strength than Darth Vader, and yet is nothing to Anakin Skywalker.

This fact is further confirmed by the Revenge of the Sith novel, which states he is the "strongest Jedi."

Also, for those who strictly go by the movies:

It's evident that Skywalker's strength is greater than Yoda's here, too.

Note that Yoda *does* use his strength in combat, as shown here:

Going only by the RotS novelization, that's really fair comparison.

How is this suggesting that Skywalker is stronger just because Dooku eventually couldn't block his strikes directly? That suggests more so that Dooku was able to from the beginning, but he was worn down to where he couldn't to conserve energy.

I agree, except for the Yoda part. Anakin isn't syronger than Yoda. Yoda held back against Dooku. Yoda would've died against Palpatine if what he showed against Dooku was his maximum.

GG isn't stronger than Vader when Kenobi is bending his arm.

Sidious.

You should probably also include Sidious >>> Savage >> Dooku as well, just to form the full map.

Anakin indeed has beastly strength. But he ain't liftin' a grown man with one hand, by his throat.

I'd say strength goes

Sidious = Yoda > Savage = Vader (not sure who has more raw strength out of Vader and Savage but equal seems about right) > Anakin > Kenobi/Maul > Grievous > Ventress > Dooku
